Carnival Kitty

Hello there! It's been so chilly here the past couple of mornings! It was 40 degrees yesterday morning, and our heat wasn't working, and hasn't worked yet. Bob called the complex today to let them know; this has also happened the last two Octobers, where we had to call and complain, and then they sent someone out to fix it. They couldn't fix it today, because the temperature quickly rose, and the heat only works if it's 50 degrees or lower. So, they said to watch it tonight, and see if it works then. 
This week has been super busy at work so far, which does make the day fly by, but can also be a bit stressful. It hasn't been that stressful yet, but I did have something frustrating come up at the end of the day today, so I stayed a little late, but I couldn't figure it out before I left. I'll be working on it again first thing in the morning, and luckily my co-worker is going to help me, as she has done before with this issue. There's some things I need to get done this week at work, before I go away on Sunday(!), so that does add a little pressure.
I can't believe I'm going away in 5 days! I can't wait to traipse the streets of the French Quarter with my mom, doing lots of shopping and eating yummy things, especially Po-boys. We're also going to go to the Botanical Gardens there, and I've never been there before. 
My mom is very into flowers, so I figured it was a good idea for something for us to do. 
In the pictures below I'm wearing my very first Vivien of Holloway purchase, which I received today! I had thought about ordering from the company for a couple of years, and I finally did it. Bob paid for part of the dress as a birthday present to me. Shirt dresses are my very favorite dress style to wear, and I love this one! The style is called Kitty. I love the length, the pockets, the buttons, the print, and the background shade of red, which is my favorite shade of red. The print is of a fair of carnival. The dress is also comfortable, and will be perfect to wear to work or outside of work. It fits my chest well; there's not even button gaping, but it is really big on my waist, so I just added the belt to hide that.

  1. This dress looks amazing on you, I love Kitty dresses and Vivien of Holloway - one of my favorite reproduction brands for sure! :)

  2. SO cute! I love VoH! I have gotten to really like their 3/4 sleeve tops. This looks great on you and such a cute print! Bummer on the loose waist but you can't even tell with the belt! Have fun in Nola! It'll be so fun to explore with your mom!
